Adele Covers "Out" Magazine


Adele is looking absolutely stunning on the cover of “Out” magazine. With her red lipstick and full eyelashes she is giving her fans “face”. With the number 1 album in the country and a lawsuit from her ex-boyfriend she says she would give it all up for the very ex who inspired “21”.

“I don’t think I’ll ever forgive myself for not making my relationship with my ex on 21 work, because he’s the love of my life,” she says.

“Well, I would still be singing in the shower, of course, but yeah [I’d give up] my career, my friendships, my hobbies. I should have given up trying to be the best.

Wow, that speaks volumes. The lengths that woman will go for these men. Couldn’t be me.
